Hourly Paid Lecturer - Fine Art

RAE Outcomes

Research interests
(i) How is the future visualised? This follows from my MA dissertation on the Reconstruction of the Berlin Stadtschloss as an Historical Projection. I am pursuing further research in this area with a view to a PhD proposal, possibly under Adrian Rifkin as supervisor. In the mean time, I am writing an article (provisional title: Crystal Palace: Archaeology of the Future) for Activate magazine.

(ii) A cognitive approach to drawing. In particular, a generic approach to graphic practices which might encompass drawing and writing equally. This follows from my teaching on the Drawing Systems modules and editorial role in Knight's Move journal.
